IN THE DARKNESS OF THE NIGHT
by João Canijo
A dark winter's night somewhere in the Portuguese countryside.
A hostess bar where another working day is starting for the family who manages it - the father, mother and two daughters, the girls who entertain and seduce the clients. A world of false appearances and in which the dreams of a different life will end up falling to pieces.
Because the father, for whom a deal has gone badly, will be forced to sacrifice his younger daughter, and will thus end up tearing his whole family apart...
